Anne Longfield comments on proposed sugary drinks tax

Children’s Commissioner for England, Anne Longfield OBE, said:

“Children who consume too much sugar risk being set up for a lifetime of poor health; conditions like obesity and diabetes affect a child’s happiness and wellbeing and the consequences can last forever, so it is vital we tackle this issue.

“There clearly is a link between the low cost of sugary drinks and the amount children consume, which is why I back the Health Committee’s calls for action.”
